This ex-ATSF steel caboose sits along side of the freight house in Muskogee. Frisco bought used cabooses from the Santa Fe beginning in 1970 to supplement their fleet. These ex-ATSF cabooses were randomly numbered in the 1100s in slotes left vacant due to scrapping of the earlier wood caboose of that number.
